What is a Custom Build Out?
A Tailor-Made Solution
A ‘custom buildout’ in the serviced office world is a large private office suite or full floor that has been designed and built by the serviced office provider, according to the wants and needs of the generally longer term tenant. A custom buildout will take into consideration any particular layout, desk shape or size, meeting room and/or office dimensions—and of course, company branding. A custom buildout is regarded as ‘one step’ below a managed office solution, which in turn is largely considered ‘one step’ closer to a traditional office lease.
HOW IT WORKS
Due to the costs associated with customisation, serviced office providers will generally require a longer term license agreement be agreed before commencement. This could range from 12 months to anything up to 24 months or beyond, dependant on the level of customisation requested. In addition, providers will often require a minimum of 8-10 week’s lead time for a custom buildout, so this must be taken into consideration if customisation is required.
THE CORRECT FIT
We believe that ‘fit’ is of paramount importance when searching for and selecting your ideal serviced office space. Whether you are a freelancer, SME or global corporate, it is vital that your coworking space reflects your business, staff needs, brand or values as closely as possible.
Hot desking that might be suitable for start-up media company will almost certainly not work for a hedge fund and this is why we focus so heavily on an industry-driven search approach backed by our thorough knowledge of the marketplace and coworking industry as a whole.
Not all coworking spaces offer the same level of data feed or security. Perhaps you need FCA compliant call recording or secure badge entry to your private office suite? Parking is a must? These are just a few of many different factors that may come into consideration when selecting your space.
